Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Sep 25, 2013

Close to 15% of the global population will experience migraines at some time or another. Despite decades of empirical and anecdotal evidence, studies and research, the exact causes of migraines are still unknown. Sufferers, or migrainers, are advised to avoid migraine triggers; those that are well documented. Other research suggests links between environment, genetics, diet, and hypothyroidism. Associated conditions and symptoms with one or all of the above include depression, anxiety and recurring/constant neck pain.

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Feb 19, 2013

If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I have revealed the fact that the number-one cause of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune thyroid [1]. Based on the number of medically managed hypothyroid patients who have sought my care for their numerous persistant health challenges, thyroid hormone replacement alone does not address the underlying cause of Hashimoto's (autoimmune thyroid). Too many patients who only utilize thyroid hormone replacement therapy may never feel the way they truly desire. It's a shame and that's why I am dedicated to helping patient's with autoimmune thyroid improve their health with my unique blend of natural methods.
